    Joanna from NJ Asked

    My flight arrives at 8:30 p.m. from Newark on Nov. 12th. I put the magical express tags on my luggage. Plane is very delayed. Get there after 10 p.m. Is luggage delivered the next day or do I have to pick it up at the airport? Just thinking ahead.

    Hi, Joanna!

    Thanks for sending in your great question! You're a girl after my own heart with thinking ahead and being prepared for the "just in case" scenario!

    When you put your Disney's Magical Express [DME] tags on your luggage, the DME Cast Members will take care of everything from the moment you check your bags in at your home airport. Your luggage will magically appear in your Disney Resort hotel room approximately 3 hours after your flight lands at Orlando International Airport, even if your flight is very delayed. People are always arriving at the airport at all hours of the night from all around the world.

    When my family used to fly in, if our flight happened to arrived late, we would let the front desk know that we'd like Bell Services to hold our luggage and then we could just call down in the morning to have it brought up to our room. Otherwise, they would come knock on the door and deliver it whenever it arrived at the Resort! I'd recommend packing PJ's and a toothbrush in your carry-on bag so you can crawl into bed and have a great night's sleep with no worries just in case!

    I hope this helps, Joanna! If you think of any other questions, please feel free to write back in!
